The Tribulation Martyrs

It is during the tribulation period (the 70th week of Daniel) that the tribulation martyrs are killed. We are told in Revelation 6: 9 - 11 that they are killed (martyred) for the word of God. (It is for their faith in Jesus that they died.). These martyrs will be killed during the 5th and 6th seals. The 6th seal is an entirely different judgment than the 5th seal. Even though this is true, it is a different seal, those tribulation saints (martyrs) will be killed during the time of that 6th seal also. They do not show up in Heaven until after the 6th seal is completed. Therefore, it is my belief that those martyrs are killed during the 6th seal as well. See Revelation 15: 2 - 4. It tells us how the martyrs had victory over the beast (Antichrist), and over his image, and over his mark, 666, and so forth. Do remember that they are already in Heaven by this time in Revelation 15: 1 - 4. Revelation 20: 4 is also referring to those martyrs of Revelation 6: 9 - 11. John, who wrote the book of Revelation, was telling us some things that have to do with the 1000 year (millennial) reign of Christ in Revelation chapter 20, verses 1 - 6. So John, in Revelation 20: 4, told us how those martyrs (of Revelation 6: 9 - 11) will live and reign with Christ for 1000 years. He tells us also how they will be killed. They are beheaded. And he tells us why they were killed. These tribulation saints, who are martyred, will be killed because they refuse to worship the beast/Antichrist and his image, and they will reject his mark 666. John also made mention in Revelation 5: 10 as to how the four and twenty elders (the Church, the New Testament saints) will live and reign with Jesus (Christ). Both groups will reign with Him (Rev. 5: 10, 6: 9 - 11, 20: 4). Those who are in human bodies will simply repopulate the earth (have families) during this period, the millennial reign of Christ (the Millennium). So, I am telling you that these martyrs will die, they will be martyred, during the 5th and 6th seals. They will go to Heaven in Revelation 7: 9 - 17, then the 7th seal will take place (Rev. 8: 1, 3 - 5). Remember, they go to Heaven between the 6th and 7th seals. Then they will return to earth with Jesus at the time of the Revelation/Second Coming (Rev. 19: 11, Zech. 14: 4 - 5, Joel 3: 16). These martyrs are not a part of the Church, the Bride of Christ (the four and twenty elders), for she will have already been in Heaven in Revelation chapters 4 and 5.
